BIG News & BloggyCon

If I’m being 100% honest with y’all, I’d have to say that I reluctantly went to BloggyCon ’14 at Cedar Point this past weekend. Veeeeeeery reluctantly. So much so that I was tempted to call the event organizer and just lay out for her all of the reasons I didn’t want to go:

  1. We just moved from Kansas to Georgia.
  2. My husband will be jobless in approximately two weeks.
  3. I came down with a severe cold the day before we were supposed to leave.
  4. We planned to drive 768 miles to Sandusky, Ohio and back again. Because, you know, we haven’t spent enough time in the car lately.
  5. Cedar Point has always been on my bucket list, but I wasn’t going to be able to actually enjoy myself there.

[Well, that’s a negative attitude. Why couldn’t Katy enjoy herself at one of the happiest places on earth?]

Try not to sing the theme song from The Jeffersons the rest of the day. Just try.

Note: If you’ve never heard of The Jeffersons, you’re too young to read this blog. Please return to your Snapchat. (I recently had to ask a younger individual what Snapchat is, and she SCOFFED at me.)

Granted, I’m even too young to remember anything about The Jeffersons except the theme song. But it sure is a catchy one.

[Seriously? Katy has been AWOL for over a month, and she opens up by talking about The Jeffersons?]

anintrovertsworstnightmare

I know, I know. I fell off the grid for over a MONTH with no explanation. Forgive me, but I haven’t quite perfected the art of blogging while juggling children, moving cross-country, and an array of other “issues” that demand my attention lately. One day I will likely share what the last month has entailed, but I’ll leave that for a more appropriate time.

Nothing like a terribly vague post to end a long hiatus, amiright?

A Weird Way to Wake Up

Let’s step back to nearly a MONTH ago when the four of us went to my in-laws’ farmhouse in Indiana. When my fashionable, Chinese friend and her husband spent their honeymoon with us. Before I had THREE children in my house asking 3 million questions an hour and eating 3 million pounds of peanut butter. I would like to finally tell you the rest of that story before I forget all of it and that space in my brain is replaced with VeggieTales lyrics.

“If it doesn’t have a tail, it’s not a monkey.
Even if it has a monkey-kind-of shape.
If it doesn’t have a tail, it’s not a monkey. If it doesn’t have a tail, it’s not a monkey. It’s an ape!”

Too late.

Made in China (& an apology to the Chinese Government)

Dear Chinese Government,

In a blog post last week, I said this:

“Believe it or not, even this silly, little blog is banned in China. Which makes sense because access to mommy blogs is pretty high on the list of ways to completely corrupt a nation.”

And then I got a comment on that post from my friend in China that said this:

Honeymooners & Hoosiers

A few weeks ago, I got an email from a dear friend and former college roommate of mine, Genii. We lived together from 2003-2004 while we studied abroad at the University of Leeds in the UK. Despite our incredibly different backgrounds (she is Chinese), beliefs, and a minor language barrier, we became fast friends.

surprises07

Those who know me best know that I love surprises — both giving and receiving. Sadly, I am tragically flawed in the secret-keeping arena. If I remember to keep the surprise a secret (a BIG if), then I become too impatient to keep it. This is why Brian almost always receives his Christmas/birthday/anniversary gifts within 25 minutes of when I purchase them.

How to Post #TBT Photos Like a Celebrity

I poured through my photos yesterday (Thursday) in an attempt to come up with the perfect TBT photo. Dad, since I know you’ll ask, TBT (Throwback Thursday) is when people post old photos of themselves on social media or blogs. Not old as in, “Check out my crow’s feet in this photo,” but old like, “Hey, check out my ALF t-shirt.”

I have plenty of pictures of both, by the way.

How to Drive Your Parents Crazy: Toddler Edition

They’re baaaaaaaaaaaack!

The McRib sandwich at McDonald’s!

I’m just kidding. I’ve never eaten a McRib in my life. But if you’re a fan, I did find this handy dandy website that records McRib “sightings” all across our great nation.

You can thank me in 15 years when all 70 McRib ingredients have processed out of your colon.
